Hideyoshi Toyotomi Statue @ Osaka Castle’s Hokoku Shrine

Hideyoshi Toyotomi began construction of Osaka Castle in 1583. Construction was completed just prior to his death. His family (the Toyotomi clan) held the area until Tokugawa took over in 1615 and the Edo Period began. The Hokoku Shrine was built in his honor on the Osaka Castle grounds late in the 19th Century.

Kvelertak’s Eriend Hjelvik @ Roskilde Festival 2016

@Kvelertak

I intended to see Kvelertak back in 2014 with Mastodon and Gojira. A photo pass never materialized for that show, though, so I didn’t go. Strangely, I still got to see Kvelertak and Gojira together. It just took an extra two-plus years and a trip to Denmark to have the experience.

Kvelertak’s show was live streamed on Red Bull TV. Sadly, I can’t find it on the internet. Anyone have a copy or URL they can point me to?

Fun interview with Brian Tatler soon after the Metal Brew show here:

When he talks about playing a song live for just the second time, he is talking about “Starcrossed” (from the “Death & Progress” album) which Diamond Head played live for the first time at Metal Brew.
